HYDERABAD: Was it the youngsters themselves who successfully managed to suppress the truth behind Nabeel Mohammed’s murder or were the parents also involved? This is the line of investigation that police has taken up after they discovered that parents of at least two accused were aware of the grave nature of crime their children had committed.
Though police have concluded that it was lack of discipline and parental monitoring that led to the death of Nabeel Mohammed (17) during a friendly fight, the manner in which the nine accused concealed the incident is posing some uncomfortable questions.
V Satyanarayana, DCP, South Zone, addressing a press conference on Thursday said that police are examining the role of parents in the suppression of truth. Police is exploring possibilities of registering cases against the parents after a full inquiry into their involvement in concealing the facts is conducted.
“We are collecting evidence regarding parents’ involvement, and basing on their statements, and available evidence, we will definitely arrest them,” said the DCP. Owais Patel (19), Mirza Omer Alsi Baig (20), Waseem Khan alias Dollar (31), Mirza Nisarullah Baig (22), Mohd Abdul Qavi alias Obaid (21), Mohd Suleman (19) and Irfan Ahmed Khan (22) and two juveniles have been arrested in the case that has been registered under sections 302, 201, 109 r/w 34 of Indian Penal Code for causing disappearance of evidence, or giving false information to screen offender, abetment and wrongful restraint.
A complaint was received by Mir Chowk Police on May 7. Nabeel’s body was exhumed on May 11 and the accused were arrested on May 13. The autopsy found nine injuries on Nabeel’s head and other parts that is said to be the cause of death.
